The release of the final Class of 2023 Player Rankings is at once exciting and sad. It is a goodbye of sorts to the senior class. The following five players climbed up the rankings during the most recent update.
Tylon Chatman Tylon Chatman 6'0" | PG Haywood | 2023 State TN performed brilliantly in Haywood’s State Tournament games. With more explosive finishes, Chatman expanded his already crafty and original style.
Ethan Turner Ethan Turner 6'8" | PF Gibson County | 2023 State TN was always a powerful, dominating low-post force. During his senior season ET incorporated an insane vertical and started dunking even more ferociously. Turner looked like a nightmarish check for opposing players. Invested a ton of time in the weight room.
Devaki Garr Devaki Garr 6'0" | PG Ensworth | 2023 State TN (Ensworth) showed off fantastic court awareness, speed, and even improved his outside shooting consistency. In the last year Devaki Garr Devaki Garr 6'0" | PG Ensworth | 2023 State TN incorporated the consistent leadership of a point guard with wonderful vision and unselfishness. Earlier in his career Ensworth needed scoring from him more than passing. As he aged into the leadership he adapted to what the program needed. Devaki is signed to Union University.
Donivon Thomas Donivon Thomas 6'5" | PF Brainerd (football) | 2023 State TN (Brainerd) was once very high, for his insanely quick hops and extremely impressive vertical jumping. Thomas fell because it seemed he was entirely focused on college football. Though he still is, the rise in the @PrepHoopsTN rankings was unavoidable after Thomas’ incredibly impactful playoff run for Brainerd High. He defended a wide area around the rim because he gets off the floor faster than almost any forward in the entire state. He also reads the game quite well when standing near the rim. He predicts shot attempts well and reacts like a tiger pouncing.
Kai’Seanne Brashear Kai’Seanne Brashear 6'2" | SG Spring Hill | 2023 State TN (Spring Hill)
Kai’Seanne banged a ton of three-pointers this year on top of his innovative drives. Senior highlights.
